And he has those pics of you at Motel 9....(Just Joking!!)

Perhaps it's best they don't show anything from the movie until it's ready.

So if you look at it one way, the release date change from December is the only reason we have a teaser or ANYTHING from the film to discuss. If May had been the original release date, we would probably only NOW see the teaser trailer.

Paramount's proceeding on their own schedule to preserve as much of the film's surprises, integrity and value as long as it can. We're still 296 days away from the release. Will we get new photos, news and video as soon as fans want it? Of course not. Will we get it when it benefits this crucial film the most? You can bet on it.
While all this is true if May 2009 had been the original release date This forum would probably be coming online just now as well. But since it's here I for one think they should make the most of it.

They are... within their REVISED marketing schedule for the May 2009 release, not the original Dec 08 release. The situation changed, the plan changed to meet it.

If they start giving away all the goodies now, how do they promote the film from January to May 2009? There would be nothing NEW left to show audiences just when the marketing is needed most to make the film a success.
